How in the world could someone do this to an infant? I hope he spends the rest of his life in prison. That poor baby, I pray it's ok. This guy needs to be castrated!

his mothers name is alex, and she wasnt there when it happened. she has two other kids with him so she had no idea he was capable of doing this. she is devastated. poor kid is only 11 weeks old. he is in the icu in critical condition he wont stop seizing and he has to have surgery because his retinas detatched either from being shook so hard or from the seizures. theres a chance the poor little guy wont make it..he needs prayers right now. and i hope that he makes it through this and lives a long happy life and that his sob father gets exactly what he deserves

Everything above is correct, except the part about his retinas being detached. Alex was told that they weren't but is about to find out for sure, as we speak. Please pray for Varian, Alex and Alex's two other children. They need it. Thank you!

His retinas aren't detached, but badly hemoraged.
